    Congregation of the Good Shepherd (COGS)

    Favorite thing: Are you an expat looking for a church in Beijing?

    Please join us on Sunday at the Congregation of the Good Shepherd (COGS), which has been worshiping in Beijing since 1993. We are an international, inter-denominational (protestant) church located in town and open to all foreign passport holders. We have about 100 congregation members, and worship every Sunday at 10am, with communion twice a month and frequent fellowship events.

    We welcome you to come and check us out on Sunday at:

    Capital Mansion Athletic Club, 3rd fl
    #6 Xin Yuan Nan Road
    Chaoyang, Beijing

    (the closest subway stop is Lianmaqiao on line 10)

    or visit our website for more information: http://www.cogs-bj.org/

    Hope to see you!

    Fondest memory: Beijing in the springtime when the parks are just warm enough to sit outside - a blissful environment to appreciate life's many blessings.

    Southern Cathedral

    Favorite thing: There are many Christian Churches in Beijing. Just ask your embassy about services!
    This is the Southern Cathedral (Nantang), the oldest Catholic Church in Beijing, founded in the middle of 16th century. It has been destroyed several times by earthquakes. Its present form comes from the rebuilding in 1904.

    Fondest memory: I attended a mass short before Christmas 1988. The church was full of Chinese and Western people. A woman was singing Christmas carols. Her voice was that of an angel! I cried as I was so much impressed by the beauty of her voice!

    Xishiku Church

    by wwliu Written Oct 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Xishiku Church also called north church in Beijing. I like this church most because it's not as chaos as others. In addition, the architecture style is most beautiful in the Beijing's churches I think.

    Nangangzi (St Theresa's Church)

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St Theresa's Church (Nangangzi)

    Favorite thing: This is the church that is a little difficult to find because it is "hidden" in a hutong and although I figured how to go in the end, I really do not know how to describe it to you because I think the best way would be via Hongqiao Market (though I havent tried).

    Fondest memory: From Chongwenmen, walk south to GuangAn Da Jie....then turn left and ask for directions to XinFu Road. Once you get there, the traffic wardens in brown are pretty helpful if you ask them about the Catholic church.

    West Church @ Xizhimen

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    West Church @ Xizhimen (nei) Da Jie

    Favorite thing: Unfortunately, the West Church is the only church i havent yet been into....its the most run down in Beijing and I almost missed it. From Xizhimen subway, head east and you should see it on your right after about 20 minutes.

    Fondest memory: Unless you are like me....otherwise, I would urge you to give it a miss

    St Michael's Church

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St Michael's

    Favorite thing: Walk east on Qianmen Dong Dajie....for about 15 minutes....you should see it on your left after a few crossroads. Its worth taking a look if you are catholic. A truly beautiful church. Really underrated!

    Fondest memory: The vertical pictures are much nicer than this....so visit my travelogue for more pictures! Album 2 and 4

    St Mary's Church (South Church) @ Xuanwumen

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    South Church

    Favorite thing: St Mary's Church (South Church) is easy to find at Xuanwu Subway Station....Visit my travelogue (album 4 or 6) for complete pilgrimage photographs

    Xishiku (North Church)

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    North Church (Xishiku)

    Favorite thing: The next church that we should go to is the North Church, better known as the Xishiku Church at the crossroads of FuYouJie....Its the BIGGEST church in Beijing and one of the main ones in China...Visit my travelogue (album 4 or 6) for complete pilgrimage photographs

    Fondest memory: From St Joseph's, continue walking north till you reach the "Art Museum (Mei Shu Guan)". Cross the road and take 109, asking to get off at FuYouJie....then the church should be about a 2 minute walk to your left once you alight.

    St Joseph @ WangFuJing

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St Joseph @ WangFuJing

    Favorite thing: Another one of St Joseph @ WangFuJing...
    Visit my travelogue (album 4 or 6) for complete pilgrimage photographs

    Fondest memory: The churches here are only open in the wee hours of the morning *yawn* so if you cannot get up early, don't go unless you want to see only the outside....

    St Joseph (East Church) @ WangFuJing

    by egosyncratix Written Dec 3, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St Joseph @ WangFuJing

    Favorite thing: There are 6 churches in the city district that are accessible by bus / subway...the others are outside of the city in the rural areas. It is recommended that you join the local churches for pilgrimage in MAY instead. By the way, the catholic church in Beijing is called the Patriotic Catholic Church of China, not the Roman Catholic Church because its loyalties are with the government (the cultural revolution), not with the Pope...

    Fondest memory: This is St Joseph's at Wangfujing. Just walk north past the shopping area...its nearby.
